Dyno Nobel launches new blasthole management system

Global Mining Review,

Dyno Nobel, a global leader in commercial explosives, launches ΔE2 – the next evolution of DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY™.

This easy-to-use software system is enabled by Dyno Nobel’s proprietary in-truck control panel, DynoLogix™. This new software system utilises data from outside sources, such as drills, face profiles or other data, that characterises rock properties to allow targeted placement of energy in the blasthole. The ΔE2 system can also send loading instructions directly to the pump truck control system ensuring boreholes are loaded as designed, giving control back to the engineer or blaster.

The ΔE2 system can improve shovel dig rates, improve crusher throughput and lower overall drill and blast costs. Furthermore, this new system improves operator efficiency by simplifying the loading process and allowing explosives’ energy to be accurately placed in the blasthole, thus reducing oversize and/or fines.

The ΔE2 Pre-Load desktop software, part of the new ΔE2 system, allows users to precisely place energy within the shot and can be used by blasters and engineers to optimise energy placement within each borehole in the shot. The system can import data from multiple sources, including data from the Dyno Nobel mobile suite of applications that can create shot designs, to allow users an easy way to control the loading of a blast. Users can view powder factors that can be changed on the fly, which gives the engineer and blaster the ability to understand explosives usage prior to loading the shot, enabling them to control the actual shot cost.
